I have no idea what has been wrong with me lately. It seems more and more I grow tired so fast. All I want to do is sleep all the time. I don't know if it is the heat or what, but something has to be done. It makes it really hard to get work done when all you can think about is how good your pillow feels under your head. Oh bed how I miss you.
Not even the wonders of soda can wake me up and give me energy. I don't know what to do, it doesn't help that I'm out of Pokeballs and there are no Pokeshops around my house. Oh the horror!
Jonathan talks to the gang about copyright and trademark laws. They dive into the new guidelines for making Star Trek fan films and if that is fair for fans.
I've limited the TV reviews from 3 a day to 2 a day. It has made it a lot easier on me to get everything done. Throw into the mix a few hours of writing and a few hours of editing and I feel like I'm finally starting to get caught up. Blueroof Productions is back in full swing. Our next youtube video is in the editing room and I can't wait for you guys to see it. It's all about NLC and how they treat their students.
I'm almost done with a script version of Dawn of War, for those of you who liked the short story, this is a more streamlined version that will be the start of a series of radio plays. I'm hoping to release a few every month, we'll see how that goes but I'm excited for the possibility.
This summer has been a waste. We haven't really gotten anything done film wise. Where as last summer we filmed 2/3 of a film before losing some actors to other projects and having to take a few steps back, this summer we haven't even done that. We have fallen behind on doing podcasts as well. This summer has been one mistake after another and we as a company need to turn it around ASAP. Let's hope we can. New Uncanny and Clean Jeans out this week. It's a start.
Welcome to the next episode of Sliders written by Steve Brown and Jon Povill. The episode starts off in what looks to be an old England type setting where Wade is in love with a man, their families don't want them to be together. Real Romeo and Juliet. Too good to be true, it isn't long before her alarm goes off and it turns out she is reading. . . you guessed it Romeo and Juliet.
The slayers walk out to find an empty place to slide out, Wade is distracted and Arturo is complaining. Things are normal for the sliders. Once on the new world Wade spots the man from her dream on a motorcycle waiting for her, he even knows her name. What the hell is going on? He tells her that he was her lover in a past life and will meet them at the hotel. He even knows what hotel they stay at.
A mystery man hires someone to hit Wade but Remy pushes her out of the way. What could be the reason behind it. The doctor can tell what is wrong with his foot without even taking off his shoe and sock. She doesn't even know what a X-Ray is. She is a 5th degree psychic. Another world where people have powers. It seems that this world has trained psychics to do medicine and arrest people before they break the law. Remy and Arturo are arrested for killing Wade. What the hell?
It turns out the Prime Oracle is the one who hired Wade killed and also blamed Remy and Arturo. They are both let go from jail and told that they are being watched. If Wade dies they will be arrested. What the hell kind of system is this?
It turns out that the man in Wade's dream is up for the job of Prime Oracle. He is picked for the job and goes out on a date with Wade. Over conversation he learns that Wade didn't have the whole dream and that the Prime Oracle just died. He is the new Prime Oracle. Quinn and Arturo talk about Wade and what they think she will do. Now aren't Wade and Quinn dating? Or at least kind of dating? If I was Quinn I would be very unhappy about Wade being out on that date.
Wade shows up at the bar while the guys are still talking. She tells them that the guy, who just got promoted to Prime Oracle, has asked Wade to marry him. Things have gotten intense fast. How could she say no to one of the most powerful people on this world? That might not go well.
Wade goes back into the dream and learns that his father has found out about their relationship and Richard, his name in the past, has asked her to meet him at the bridge. However she doesn't make it there because he calls and wakes her up. Remy is not happy when he hears that she in engaged. Quinn demands that she tell him no but Wade says she wants to talk to him in person. She says she will still say no but wants to do it face to face. It is clear that Quinn is Jealous. Can you blame him?
Wade learns that the old Prime Oracle told him that she would help him to become great. She is having a hard time accepting it. Quinn keeps trying to talk her out of marrying this guy but he keeps pushing her towards him. Remy tries to tell Quinn that he needs to back off and let Wade decide for herself. He will miss her too but it isn't for them to decide what she should do.
The Prime Oracle, new one not old, made a room for Wade set up like her childhood room. At first she loves it but when she figures out that he found it by going into her mind she gets mad. Calls it akin to rape and wants to go back to the hotel. He won't let her go. He says if she leaves he will never see her again. She agrees to stay for one night and they can talk in the morning. The romance of it all is gone. The Sliders wait outside the Prime Oracle's house for Wade. it takes her awhile but they finally spot her heading towards them. They toss her a rope and she climbs down to them. As she is still climbing down police show up, surrounding them with the Prime Oracle. He tells her to say goodbye to her friends because she will never see them again. This shit has gotten dark!
She finally finished the dream. It turns out his father had Wade's past life killed and he swore to get more power and stop him. That leads us to who he is today. She tells him that if he doesn't let her go she will never forgive him. He tells her that he can't see the future with her. She is his blind spot and his whole life depends on what happens with her.
They have 6 hours till the slide and no way to get Wade out. At least until their new friend remembers that her collage roommate is the President's speech writer. Arturo makes Quinn stay behind in case Wade calls while the rest of them go off to save Wade.
No one will help Wade because whatever the Prime Oracle says goes. That is the law of the land. Wade gets a bottle of pills with what looks to be a note inside. She takes the pills and calls Quinn telling him that the Prime Oracle won't let her go. She takes a lot of pills and OD's herself while on the phone with Quinn. He rushes to over, trying to get the security to help her.
Quinn carries her out while the Prime Oracle feels bad for himself. The Prime Oracle says he doesn't want the job anymore. He isn't worthy. The ambulance pulls up near the park where the others are waiting for them. It turns out the others planned this. Wade is really alive and they kept Quinn in the dark so that the Prime Oracle couldn't find out.
As they bring Wade back the Prime Oracle senses that she is alive and comes after her. It's all down to the wire, like it always is. That's what makes Sliders so great! It keeps you on the edge of your seats. The Prime Oracle lets Wade go and tells her sorry. We learn that the old Prime Oracle set all this up to save the both of them. It is a happy ending. Got to love this show, I know I do!
Welcome to a great episode all about Giles! Written by Rob Des Hotel and Dean Batali. If you haven't seen it yet be sure to check it out here.
Because we will spoil the hell out of it. Well I guess that is the point of a review isn't it? The episode starts off with a worried looking man arriving late at night to look for Giles, the janitor sends him to the library but a scary looking woman he knows shows up and comes after him. He makes it to the outside door of the library but its locked and Giles can't hear him banging thanks to Buffy's loud music.
It's a bit funny because Giles complains about the music calling it nothing but noise. In this episode we learn about his past. He was a rebel son. Hard core rock and roll type dude. It's cool to see how much he has grown up.
Outside the demon lady kills the man and turns to what looks like water before seeping into the man. The next morning Giles has a nightmare about his past. When he gets to school and runs into the gang you can see he is bugged about something. He tells Buffy they have to go and check out a blood transfer unit, make sure no vamps steal it.
Jenny comes up and we learn that Willow is helping her teach a weekend class to help students who are behind. Xander quickly mocks them before learning he is apart of the class. Giles walks Jenny to class where she pretends to have ruined his book. He freaks out. I don't blame him, if it were my comics I would too. Don't fuck with a man's books!
Jenny invites Giles to come over and stay in with her. The man is going to get some! Good on him! Jenny is hot! His good mood is quickly ruined as he makes it to the library where he sees a detective and a few uniform cops. Before he can find out what happened Cordy barges in and starts complaining. Giles yells at her and demands she leaves. I love Cordy so much. She is too funny.
Giles identifies the man as an old friend and lies about the tattoo on the guys back. After all he has the same one. That night he doesn't show up and Buffy is alone dealing with the vamps stealing the blood. At least until Angel shows up and jumps into the fight. Together they make short work of the blood suckers, or at least most of them, a few make off in the car. Buffy asks him to make sure the hospital gets the rest of the blood, giving him a look like don't drink any! It's a cute funny moment between the two.
She heads to Giles's house and he more or less blows her off. Once she leaves we find out what he is busy doing. He is calling up all his old friends and finding out one by one that they are all dead. The only two people from their group left alive is himself and Ethan Rayne, you all remember him from the Halloween episode. It seems Giles past is coming back with a bang and old Ethan is involved somehow.
The dead guy wakes up in the morgue. It doesn't take long for him to kill a doctor and get out of there, off to find the librarian. Buffy goes to talk to Jenny about Giles and Xander makes some jokes about hating Cordy, making what happens in the next few episodes all the more what the hell!!!! Am I the only one who finds the weekend class weird? It is Jenny, Willow helping her and Cordy and Xander needing help. So this whole class is about Cordy and Xander? No one else finds that weird? Anyways, Cordy tells them all about how she saw the police talking to Giles about a murder. Buffy runs to the library to give him a call and comes across none other than Ethan Rayne himself! He tries to knock her out with a bookcase but she dives out of the way and captures him. He doesn't put up much of a fight.
Buffy finds out that Ethan and Giles are old friends. He tells her a bit about the past and she calls Giles for more information but is interrupted by the dead guy attacking. Ethan knows him as well, which all makes sense. Whatever shit that Giles got into back when he was Reaper is coming back and hurting all of their lives thanks to Giles. Who starts manhandling Ethan, the badass that Giles use to be and will be again starts to show up for the first time. This is when Giles because a character I love!
The dead guy breaks out, knocks out Jenny and gets his ass beat by Buffy. He breaks into water and Ethan runs off. The water touches Jenny just before Giles wakes her up and Cordy blames the whole thing on Saturday school. Can you blame her? Weekend school is evil and should not exist ever! Poor Jenny is possessed and Giles has no idea. Buffy demands answers from Giles who doesn't want her help, he tells her to mind her own business and he storms off, taking Jenny with him. Leaving Buffy to lead the others to find information. She gives everyone a job but for Cordy who then asks for help until she is forced to work with Xander. It's almost as if the two don't like each other. I can't wait for the next episode.
Willow finds out that the demon takes control of people who are unconscious and make them feel high. No lie, I dated a girl who swore she use to do that. Let a demon control her body so she could get high. People are weird! Oh and we learn that the demon can also take over the dead. That's important for later. Buffy and Xander figure out that the demon is now in Jenny, who pulls out the phone cords at Giles's place. Oh how this show is dated, remember home phones? I miss those days haha.
Jenny wants to mess around with Giles who tries to turn her down because he doesn't want to take advantage of her. She starts talking shit to him. She then starts to manhandle him. Kicking his ass. Giles isn't strong enough to fight this demon, not while she is in Jenny's body. Lucky for him Buffy shows up, kicking in the door and stopping her. Jenny dives out the window all but telling them that she is going after Ethan.
Xander and Willow uncover pictures of Giles hardcore past while he tells Buffy about it himself. He tells her all about how one of his friends died while letting this demon inside. It is what made him stop messing around the demon. Buffy won't let him go with him. He is worried that the only way to kill it is to also kill Jenny.
Buffy heads to the Halloween costume shop to find Ethan who is there waiting for her. She offers help and instead he knocks her out. She wakes up tied to a table. His idea is to remove his tattoo and give her one of her own. Cordy and Xander get ready to fight when Willow steps up and puts them both in place. She is a G yo! They both back down quick fast and in a hurry. As a joke Xander comes up with the solution. He suggests another dead body and it helps Willow figure everything out. She really is smart.
As Ethan removes his tattoo Giles gets a vision of Buffy now having a tattoo. It seems these tattoos connect them all. Ethan wants to run out but Jenny demon gets there first. She starts towards Ethan but then tosses him aside as she goes after Buffy. It would seem his idea works. Jenny is making short work of Buffy when Giles shows up and offers himself in trade. She is about to kill Giles when Angel storms in and starts manhandling Jenny. The demon jumps from Jenny to Angel. We see them fighting for control but in the end Angel wins and the demon dies. Knocking Angel to the floor. It seems the vampire demon was stronger. It's almost a victory, but Ethan is gone and Giles and Jenny have a rocky road to recover in their relationship. Oh and Buffy now has to get a tattoo removed. That sounds expensive and painful. The demands of being the slayer.
As the episode come to an end you can't help but feel bad for Giles. He never wanted anything bad to happen to Jenny. He isn't the same man he was back then but it doesn't really matter does it? Everything you do always comes back to bite you in the ass. One way or another.
